“Everbody’s Comfortable With Him”

July 22nd, 2013

Warning: this video might be painful to longtime Bucs fans.

The link above takes you to a Warren Sapp and Willie McGinest NFL Network breakdown of training camp storylines. So what’s the big deal? Well, it includes video of Bucs icon Monte Kiffin coaching in his new Cowboys gear and seemingly unable to get his 72-year-old bones to stand up straight. For Joe, there’s something very wrong about seeing Kiffin in those colors with Rod Marinelli as his sidekick.

Also possibly troubling for Bucs fans is Sapp being very high on the Cowboys for 2013 — yet another NFC team one could consider a roadblock in the Bucs’ quest for the playoffs.

Sapp also makes it very clear that the New Schiano Order is very pleased to trot out Josh Freeman as its starting quarterback. “Everbody’s comfortable with him down in Tampa,” Sapp said.

No. 99 also went on to say he’s skeptical of the Bucs defense because he’s “never seen a defense led by the back end, by the secondary.”‘

Joe gets Sapp’s point. However, the Bucs hardly had a legendary pass rush last season, and Joe’s quite confident the Bucs would have one at least two more games last season if Dashon Goldson and Darrelle Revis, aka Batman and Robin, were patrolling the back end.

    A lot to digest here….”Everybody’s comfortable”….he’s talking about GM/Coaches….I’m not sure about fanbase.
    As for the defense being led from the back end…he’s right about that but I’ll take the defense being led from anyplace compared to last year.
    As for the Cowboys……screw the Cowboys….when they lose, I have had a great sports weekend. All they will do, if they are good is knock off other NFC competitors to the Bucs playoff drive….like Wash & NYG.

    Lol everybody is comfortable in the off season when no games can be played. Hell I’m comfortable right now to with Freeman. That very well could change come Sundays in September.

  4. Gus Says:

    First off I think this defense is being lead by Gerald McCoy. This is STILL his defense. Second, we have seen a defense led by the secondary. Jets in 2009/2010

    A dream come true this year would be for the Bucs to beat the 49ers in the NFC Championship game, and then beat the Jets in the Superbowl. Think about it.

    We don’t have a choice at this point. There is NO one available better than what we have, and unless management wants to experiment with their jobs, and start a 3rd round rookie, I wouldn’t expect that to happen unless freeman goes down with an injury, and even then, if our seasons in the balance, I think they’d start Orlovsky over Glennon. If the season is lost, then you might see Glennon.

    I’m not comfortable with jfro 6 pack jackson

    They are comfortable with JFro six pack but they sure aren’t excited by him.

    Not trying to be a smart ass here but isn’t starting a guy who only averages 6 wins a year and only 1 against good teams, experimenting with there jobs?

    You say we have no one better but that is yet to be determined until we see Glennon play. Though the chances of Glennon being ready this year is highly unlikely… doesn’t mean its impossible. Point is until there is a clear winner coming out of training camp… it’s wrong to say “There is NO one available better”.

    Unless you think Freeman is so good it is unfathomable that a rookie can come in and beat him out. I clearly dont.

    49ers won their first championship after drafting ronnie lott and eric wright….just saying

  11. Macabee Says:

    Ben,

    Could that be Eric Davis of NFL-AM?

  12. Macabee Says:

    Ben,

    You’re right, the first SB was with Eric Wright. Eric Davis came later!

  13. Dave Says:

    How are they lead by the back end? Last I checked McCoy has emerged as the leader of the D-Line and a leader on the D, so is David. Just because they went out and revamped the D-Backs that means they are “lead” by them?

    I have never respected a player and hated him so much at the same time as I have Sapp and M. Irvin. (Both U guys).
    Can we jyst retire the jersey and have him go quietly away.

    Let’s face it, half the time you need a decoder to even know what the hell he is talking about

    LaVonte David and Doug Martin: 2 young Buc leaders, and studs.

    I gotta say.

    With Dwight Freeney, Brent Grimes, Michael Turner, and Idonije

    We would be realistic Super Bowl contenders.

    Teams like Seattle have ridiculous depth on their D- line AND their secondary.

    You cannot gamble in the NFL.

    You MUST have depth.

    The best part of these posts was when Robert was too stupid to spell “stoopid”. Now that’s funny.
